With the news of recent weeks that Airbus is likely to debut a revised version of the A350, I'd like to compile a timeline of how the product has evolved over time. In a FI
article, one analyst called this A350 Version 3.0, which led me to wonder, what has changed from the first A350, to the second, and to the third? These are the sorts of intruiging details that can be quickly lost with time, so I'd like to scrap them together into some sort of presentation.
I know it has gone something like this:
January 2003 - B7E7 debut, Airbus initial response to re-engine the A330
July 2004 - Airbus offers A330-200 "Lite" to SQ
November 2004 - Foregard presents A350 for the first time
December 2004 - Air Europa launch order
May 2005 - First talk of heavily revised A350 (V2.0?) for EK
launch at Faranborough
June 2005 - Airbus wins major Qatar order
January 2006 - EIS date pushed back
May 2006 - Talk of additional A350 revisions, (V3
The help I am looking for is any
articles relating to the A350, any
drawings/pictures, or any clips you may have of the A350. The differences between the A350 revisions is what I'm most interested in.
Thanks for any help, I hope to compile some sort of graphic timeline that I'll put on my homepage within a few weeks.
